Trademark fight: NC State and KeukaCollege Battle Over WOLFPACK

By David Lilenfeld on February 6, 2016

Was @PackAthletics right to force @KeukaCollege to drop WOLFPACK as its nickname/trademark?

According to its website, North Carolina State University adopted the WOLFPACK nickname for their sports teams in 1921.  Fast forward to 2016 and apparently North Carolina State University thought it was time to act.  NC State “lawyered up” and compelled the small, upstate New York liberal arts college to drop WOLFPACK. Feeling cornered by the Big Bad Wolf, the college acquiesced and is now known as the Wolves. The colleges will not change its logo, which depicts a threatening canis lupus.

I used my Twitter account (David Lilenfeld Twitter post) to take an informal poll. An overwhelmingly 87 people voted that NC State overstepped, while only 12 people thought NC State did the right thing. My next idea is for the two to settle this on the basketball court – winner gets the name, loser rebrands. Game on!

    « David Lilenfeld Blog is a little boring. You could glance at Yahoo’s home
    page and note how they create news titles to grab viewers to open the links.
    You might try adding a video or a related pic or two to
    grab readers interested about everything’ve written. In my opinion,
